The EA Lady Wolves, who finished the season 28 and 8, came home with the fourth place trophy on Saturday, November 5, 2022. It was a tough two days in Cape Girardeau and the calls were a lot tighter than normal. On Friday the Lady Wolves played the Advance Hornets. Advance won the first two sets 25 – 23 and 25 – 19. EA then turned the tides and won set three 25 – 19. The fourth just got away from the Lady Wolves and ended 25 – 12 Advance. Advance would go on to be state champions. On Saturday, EA played for third and fourth place against the Winona Wildcats. The Cats came out swinging and won the first three sets 13 – 25, 21 – 25 and 12 – 25. This was not the outcome they had in mind. We are so proud of you and the way you represented Atchison County.
